want to know how fertile my eggs are , so when is the earilyest sign i can look for
sometimes day 3 but definitely by day 5
I can tell most on day 3 but don't discard until day 10, just in case
you beat me
i usually candle at day 4 or 5 then again at day 10 or 11 just to be sure. i candled some eggs a few weeks ago and thought some of them were not viable. i just didn't give up and didn't see a thing until day 13. late starters i guess.
It also depends on egg color and what you use to candle....
i totally agree. i have some maran eggs that it is impossible to candle. just have to wait and hope for the best and make sure they don't start smelling.
Quote:yes, good marans are VERY difficult to see even with a great candler, just hope you don't get a cold
thx guys and gals
